    Guys, this number is definately a commonwealth bank number.
    I recently recieved a text message telling me my personal loan had been processed and I would recieve my funds shortly. At first I thought it was suspicious coming from a mobile number, however I checked my netbank and I also had am email from the bank saying the same thing.
    However if you recieve any texts from the bank when your not expecting it then I would definately call them to make sure someone hasn't got a hold of your banking details or anything like that

    MOST definitely scam.
    Two temporary passwords within one minute.
    Then 8 minutes later "your mobile number has been updated on your Commonwealth Bank profile"
    I don't have a Comm Bank account.
    Number now blocked

    Don't take any notice of this number, if you try calling it, a recorded message will say " the number you have call has been disconnected". Clearly it's a scam

    Think it’s a scam. I noticed suspicious transactions on my card so I locked it - then hours later this mobile number started sending messages reminding me that it was locked and how I could open it again. Coincidence? Better to be on the safe side - blocked.

    I received an sms notification from 0488 728 596 that my credit card payment was due, AVG reported it as suspicious but according to commbank https://www.commbank.com.au/support/faqs/959.html?ei=gsa_support_sms-from-commbank that is the number a legitimate message will be sent from.

    “Hi Nick can you please contact me on (I presume it’s 03 area code!) 6711 1253 Regards CBA Launceston”
    I don’t bank with them.

    To the ppl who have commented here that don’t bank with Comm Bank, your identity has been stolen - start making some calls ASAP.
    To anyone else who has recently opened an account with Comm bank or are an existing Commonwealth Bank customer,

    YES THIS IS THE COMMONWEALTH BANK.

    Obviously you can’t call back this number (yes @commbank, maybe an idea would be to also list your CUSTOMER SERVICE NUMBER?) Hopeless.

    Merry Christmas, be safe, be careful but don’t be a fool 😉

    100% a scam. I've had to cancel my card because somebody was trying to use it. Luckily I realized what was going on. Now I've cancelled the card this number has contacted me for a second time reminding me my card is still locked.
